The family schedule can get overwhelming!  So here are 10 stylish family schedule and command centerideas to help you get organized!  Because let’s face it, organization doesn’t have to be ugly. As you may know, I just moved my family to Ohio and as we’re signing up for music lessons and tutoring… life is getting crazy. {again}  Therefore, I’m in the market of re-doing our family schedule and here are a few of the things that inspired my command center!


Plan The Family Schedule

Be sure to include everything you need for your family schedule into your command center, including but not limited to:

Command Center

Command Center Ideas

1.  Pottery Barn Command Center Knock-Off ~ She how this talented mama took her familie’s activities and goal and created her own inexpensive look that meets the needs of her family.

This Week and Next Week Boards

6.  This Week and Next Week Boards ~ A week at a glance wipe-on wipe-off boards using the Ribba frames from Ikea.

Family Organization

    They’re all so cute! It seems like you need more than one child for them to be that cute, though. LOL

    These are fantastic. My house is so small and the downstairs is open space so there is really no convenient place to incorporate something like this. I must figure out a way.

    I’d love to be this organized! It’s great that you’re training your kids to be this neat with their things, chores, etc. Reading your post, you’ve given me ideas on how to make my office and family life more organized.

  12. Julie

    Thank you for your wonderful tips and this post. I love all things organizational since that is not in my nature. I yearn for organization and read about it all the time, attempt it sporadically and then give up in dismay. I feel like my house is too small for many of the ideas and then there’s my small hint of pack-rattedness… (sp) I enjoy your site very much.

  13. Terra

    I love these ideas! I am looking for something similar to the paper/magazine holders in picture #5. Where did you buy them? Thanks!

  14. Pam aka Momma

  15. Sam
